    I’ve had the same issue, but not on my own site, just at other blogs. There is enough space for one line of text. Sometimes the box size will increase as soon as I click my cursor in the form, but not always. Also, prior to clicking on the box, it does not show that I am logged in.


    Oops, I should have said that I am already logged in before I comment.




    Your form is fine. It expands when you enter the text and scroll bars kicks in automatically. See this this picture:

    Good luck.



    Thanks timethief. I tried searching for such a thing, but must have never used the right words. This is kind of disappointing, that staff has not addressed any of the concerns. Is there supposed to be a point to collapsing comment boxes? I am not sure it really adds to the appearance of the blogs.



    I’m sorry I don’t know why auto-collapsing comment boxes have been added to some themes and not others. I find them very difficult to use as I explained in the other thread.
